Manitoba is really the great white north. It is way the hell up in the middle of nowhere. I mean there are parts of Minnesota that are way the hell up there where the lakes don't thaw until mid May and temps dive to forty below--but Manitoba, that is north of northern Minnesota. And it's full of hosers and hockey players. Well, not exactly full, because Manitoba is big, really big, twice the size of California big. The population density is only four people per square mile. So to be correct, I should say that Manitoba is almost empty, but those that are there are hosers and hockey players. But still, Winnipeg is kind of a neat city and in July you only need a sweater when you venture outside. And they have a lake (again named Winnipeg--not terribly creative folks) that is roughly the same size as the state of Vermont.

And if you want to know why the hell I'm writing in this nonsensical style check out the following link:

The McKenzie Brothers were a big influence on my juvenile mind twenty odd years ago.

    I drove all the way across Manitoba when the Canola was in bloom and the whole province was bright yellow. Flattest place I ever saw.

    Some places are special for not being special.. It takes someone special to appreciate them... like a special needs child..

    Excellent. A Nutty Club search Google give the next results: A delicious recipe for Nutty Club, with vodka, amaretto almond liqueur, cranberry juice and lime juice.

    Would it be fun to go on a long extensive Manitoba roundtrip?

    A great page for me to wake up to this morning - I actually laughed out loud minutes after waking up! You are so right about the architectural style, eh?
